This is the guy who should be winning. Bob Burr
But nobody knows about him because he doesn't take bribes.. er.. campaign contributions. We need to take private money out of politics before we can get real candidates.

Online Voters' Guide
"The political system is corrupt to its core. Corporations exert undue influence over elected officials, legislation and regulation. Politicians put special interests ahead of the public interest. It shows up in earmarks, tax breaks and legislative concessions. Approval ratings of the U.S Senate are at an all-time low . We are tired of the charade of Senators who may spend their days criticizing the special interests, but take checks from the same industries at night.

The only way to change this is to get private money out of politics. I accept none. Polls show that people of all parties and backgrounds strongly want public financing of elections. The politicians don't. Incumbents like their built-in advantage. I will lead the charge for publicly financed elections."

Another new poll on the race in Washington state showing Sen. Murray with a nice lead..

That's right Patty, smack that used care salesman Rossi in the mouth.

Quote:
According to CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday, 51 percent of likely voters in Washington State back the three term senator, with 43 percent supporting Rossi, who was the GOP gubernatorial nominee in 2004 and 2008, with two percent undecided.

------
"Washington is one of the few states CNN has polled in this fall in which Democrats and Republicans are equally enthusiastic about voting," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

I believe I detect a trend. Rossi supporters have got to be concerned, as this is all pointing towards a Murray victory.

If Rossi wins .... then the majority of voters will have voiced their opinion on the direction America should be going.

Dems may always rail for gay rights and abortion. But, dammit, smart Americans have to vote against ridiculous government spending.

Remeber, SPENDING is right up there with all of the other Democratic values.

Values like .... you can't grow food if it threatens a minnow.

You can't break an Eagle egg ( you'd go to jail for this ) but you can kill a baby in the womb.


Values like you can't have toys in Happy Meals because it will make kids obese. But, before long, you'll be able to buy pot in California for recreational use. No conflict on the health issue there.

After Democrat's kids smoke a joint ... you can bet they'll want a couple of Happy Meals.


Folks in the Northwest should look to Rossi. If you want to see jobs again.

You didn't say anything about Rossi, or Murray for that matter in this post. You didn't give one detail about how he would create jobs, despite your final sentence claiming that he would.

And for the record, pot is safer than McDonald's (it's never killed anyone), but no one will be selling it to kids (not in a legal market, that is). And you can still get toys in happy meals, can't you?

First sentence... Reread instead of scan over.

Dino the real estate boy is Washington state's resident LOSER. He lost every major campaign he's launched, and he'll surly lose this one. Washingtonians will simply not vote for a dishonest thug like Dino. I suggest he go back to real estate because clearly politics aint his thang.
